do you want a handmade baby quilt?

For Hen's first Christmas, my mom surprised us with a gorgeous hand-sewn quilt. I was, of course, bawling the second I opened it because a gift like that you can't buy at a store and it's something that Henry will no doubt hand off to his own baby some day {omg, MORE tears!!}.

Henry's quilt turned out so beautiful that my mom has taken up sewing again and is whipping out quilts like nobody's biznazz and I thought it would be fun to try something new.

A quilt auction!

So here's how it works:

* Starting price is $50 (+ S&H)
* You are bidding on the handmade quilt pictured below
* Leave a comment letting me know that you are interested and how much you'd like to pay (ex: if someone has already bid $52, leave me a comment saying you'd pay $53....)
* If you're the only person to comment, you could win this quilt for $50!
* Auction ends Friday, March 31st

About the quilt:




* Size: 32 x 42 (the size of a crib mattress)
* Perfect for a crib, tummy time, stroller outings, or as a picnic blanket!
* 100% cotton fabric (john deer, blue sky, and red bandana patterns. same as Henry's, CUTE).
* Henry's is made from the same material and it's super cuddly, he sleeps with it every night!

(Also, $50? A steal. I've priced quilts this size on Etsy and they are selling anywhere from $75-$150!)

Good luck!

(payment accepted through PayPal. auction open to US/Canada residents only -sorry! please email any questions to: allie at wonderful_life_blog@yahoo.com)
